METRO charity events

One is Santa to a Little One

"One is Santa to a Little One" is a good New Year's tradition of METRO Russia, which provides care and support to those who especially need it.

For more than 10 years in a row, every December, METRO has been installing in stores Christmas trees with the New Year wishes of children from orphanages. Each visitor can take a postcard, buy the gift indicated on it, and bring it to the METRO store. When all the gifts are collected, the company's employees, together with the customers wishing to participate, organize trips to orphanages, where they hand over the gifts to the children.

Charity Lottery

One of the traditions of METRO in Russia is holding a charity lottery. In 2021, it was held for the 12th time.

Employees of the central office, who would like to take part in the lottery, are invited to send a donation in the amount of one thousand rubles to partner funds.

All participants who made a donation are assigned numbers, according to which prizes are subsequently drawn. The prize fund is made up of gifts from business partners, which office employees bring to organizers in accordance with the corporate requirements of METRO.

Conducting a charity lottery in such a format helps to involve the team in systematic assistance to those in need, make donations to charitable organizations and ensure compliance with corporate standards.
